Product Overview

With the current growth in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) developments, networks are expected to perform at their best to support heavy workloads. Combine this requirement with the already mature containerized workload requirement, and it's clear why networks are hitting capacity. Higher bandwidth requirements between the server and the top-of-rack switch result in higher 400G radix requirements at the spine and super-spine layer of the IP fabric multitier architecture.

Juniper Networks QFX5230-64CD switch is aimed at supporting these high-speed, high-density, spine-and-leaf IP fabrics. Supporting 400GbE, 200GbE, 100GbE, 50GbE, 40GbE, 25GbE, and 10GbE connections and offering advanced L2 and L3 features, and Secure ZTP, the QFX5230-64CD enables network operators to build large, next-generation IP fabrics based on a proven, Internet-scale software suite with best-in-class automation capabilities.

Product Description

Juniper Networks® QFX5230-64CD switch is a high-radix class switch, dedicated for high-bandwidth network switching devices supporting up to 64 × 400GbE, 128 × 200GbE, 256 × 100GbE, 64 × 40GbE, 256 × 25GbE, 256 × 10GbE ports in 2 U form factor. This makes the QFX5230-64CD optimal for a spine and super-spine role within IP and Ethernet VPN-Virtual Extensible LAN (EVPN-VXLAN) fabrics. The additional Remote Direct Memory Access over Converged Ethernet (RoCEv2) capabilities of the QFX5230-64CD support IP storage deployments where instead of relying on deep buffer switching, the QoS mechanisms such as priority-based flow control-distributed services code point (PFC-DSCP) and explicit congestion notification (ECN) deliver high performance for the storage workloads. Support for ZR/ZR-M optics makes it suitable for edge and data center interconnect (DCI) use cases.

Automation and Monitoring

Juniper® Apstra® intent-based networking delivers full Day 0 through Day 2+ capabilities for IP/EVPN fabrics with closed-loop assurance in the data center. Apstra is a fabric management solution that empowers organizations to automate and manage their networks across virtually any data center design, vendor, and topology, making private data center as easy as cloud. Apstra provides full Day 2+ operations assurance with multiple built-in intent-based analytics probes to assure your network is running as designed. In addition, Apstra provides a simple UI workflow to create custom intent-based analytics to capture, enrich, and visualize data from the managed devices. Apstra also provides the capability to capture and analyze flow data to provide complete network visibility.

For additional automation, Junos® OS Evolved supports a robust API set to support HashiCorp® Terraform®, Ansible, zero-touch provisioning (ZTP), operations and event scripts, automatic rollback, and Python scripts. The QFX5230-64CD supports Junos Telemetry Interface, a modern telemetry streaming tool that provides performance monitoring in complex, dynamic data centers.
